A construction site is abuzz as students resume work on Mojave Bloom, UNLV's entry into the U.S. Department of Energy's international 2020 Solar Decathlon Build Challenge. The theme of resilience - taking on new meaning amid a global pandemic - is carrying 50 UNLV students through as they finish the energy-neutral home designed to provide a healing respite for military veterans with PTSD or traumatic brain injuries. The competition begins April 15, with nine teams vying for the title of best students builders.

Mojave Bloom will be displayed at LV Healing Garden.
